I have been drinking energy drinks daily for the past 6 months and they do boost my energy but also have a bad effect on my dental health :erm:

My job requires me to be on my feet 8-10 hours a day and involves lifting stuff up to 20 kg, I've went once without Red Bull for a shift and that was awful, I was tripping over and feeling like a living zombie. I do sleep enough, 7-8 hours are perfectly fine for me because if I sleep longer, I'll have difficulty of falling asleep the following day.

Are there any other things that are as effective as energy drinks but with less damage to the body?

Are you getting good quality sleep at night? Make sure you're eating plenty of carbohydrates as your body likes to use these as fuels.

What about caffeine pills? Pretty cheap without the acidity/empty calories of energy drinks

Evidently not

Also, just trialling one shift without the caffeine dose will be hard on you, as you'll still be on the comedown from the previous shifts as you're effectively reliant on it. I think it generally takes 2 weeks to recover properly from that.

I guess I do get good quality sleep, not sure though because room next to my left has a snoring train and to the right the person who's night owl and is loud :teehee: Okay, I'll try those

I have to keep it to 7-8 hours because I have trouble falling asleep and more than 8 hours means I won't be able to fall asleep the next night
